TORONTO (December 8, 2016) – Respect Much’s au-thor-i-tah! SOUTH PARK’s foul-mouthed fourth graders are taking over Much this holiday season, and they’re maybe (almost definitely) going to ruin Christmas! For the first time ever, Much is airing all 20 seasons of the EMMY® award-winning animated series in a two-week marathon running every night from 9 p.m. – 5:30 a.m. beginning Christmas Eve, Saturday, Dec. 24 through Sunday, Jan. 8. Viewers can tune in to the SOUTHPARK 20 marathon and relive all 277 episodes of the eerily topical series, from the Tom Cruise Scientology episode “Trapped in the Closet” to episodes like “Canada on Strike,” which hilariously depicts Canadiana. The SOUTHPARK 20 marathon also includes fan-favourite Christmas episodes like “#happyholograms,” “Merry Christmas Charlie Manson,” and “A Very Crappy Christmas.” Additional Holiday Programming on Much:
  • Leading into the SOUTHPARK 20 marathon, viewers can relive their favourite holiday episodes of THE SIMPSONS with CHRISTMAS IN SPRINGFIELD (Monday Friday at 5:30 p.m. ET, Dec. 8 – 22).
  • Then, the Cleveland-Tubbs family gets festive in the CHRISTMAS IN STOOLBEND marathon, featuring a selection of holiday episodes from THE CLEVELAND SHOW (Daily at 5 p.m. ET, Dec. 19 – 22).
  • Viewers can recover from their holiday feasts on Boxing Day with the TEAM NINJA WARRIOR MARATHON (Dec. 26 from 1 p.m. – 9 p.m. ET). This competition series follows teams as they compete in pairs of three on the most challenging obstacle course in Ninja history.
  • Next up, brave participants try to complete incredibly simple yet hilariously difficult games in THE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE GAMESHOW MARATHON. Seasons 1 and 2 of the competition series air beginning Dec. 27 at 3 p.m. ET and continuing on Dec. 28 and 29 (see addendum).
  • Much adds some booze to the holiday festivities with THE BEST OF DRUNK HISTORY MARATHON (Dec. 29 from 3 – 9 p.m. ET). Featuring historical moments recounted by inebriated storytellers, with reenactments from A-list talent, some of the top episodes of the Emmy®-winning series are featured, including appearances by Tony Hale (VEEP), Jason Momoa (FRONTIER), Courtney Cox (COUGAR TOWN), and more.
  • Then, it’s all cops all the time with the COP MOVIE MARATHON, featuring the first two Police Academy movies and Starsky & Hutch (Dec. 30-31from 3 9 p.m. ET).
  • Finally, viewers can celebrate the New Year with the Much TOP 50 (Dec. 31 and Jan. 1 from 6 a.m. 9 p.m. ET) and TOP 100 (Jan. 2 from 11 a.m. 9 p.m. ET) music video marathons.
